Ice Plant and Cut Glass, 1996
The Chinati Foundation, Marfa, Texas, USA
The Ice Plant is part of a series of buildings owned by The Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas. Whilst on internship at the Foundation, Sara made a series of interventions in outbuildings located in the desert landscape. The Ice Plant was part of a disused ice factory set close to the single railway line that passed through the town. Hundreds of holes pierced the tin building creating a kaleidoscope of sun spots and light beams.
Cut Glass was a temporary installation in a disused army barracks. Using found objects, the work placed glass fragments on the floors and responded to the shifting harsh Texan sunlight.
